  Ferrex 20V Brushless Hammer Drill Kit

Products are OK, but the customer service was terrible

The machine was good for 5 months. The chuck got jammed. Machine says- 5 years warranty. Contacted their customer service, and the manager wasted my half day demanding more videos and images. Finally, tells me that I was not following the instructions. For what? The booklet hardly has any instructions, and that too, for changing a drill-bit? A joke. Show details

Pitiful user Manual

Of course, Made in China means horrible documentation!! No diagrams and therefore number references go with NOTHING. Taking the battery off was tricky and of course no help from the manual!! Show details

WorkZone Is Not The Bargain You Are Looking For

Bought an ALDI WORKZONE drill about two years ago. As I recall it was a package with charger and battery. After only light household use - a few dozen times at most, the keyless chuck loosens itself, which requires interrupting the job to retighten, and now the charger has died.
When purchased I’m sure it was advertised as a three year warranty, but now ALDI say one year, so it isn’t covered.
Really terrible product, terrible customer service, unreliable and untrustworthy. Seems like a bargain when you buy it, but when you have to buy a replacement two years later, not so much.
Last time I buy any electronic tools from ALDI. Show details

Burn out

Worked fine for a while, then noticed it would not turn, but the light was on, tried reverse , worked for a second, flicked back to clockwise, then smoke started coming out of this drill ! So it's stuffed.

VERY DISAPPOINTED, Battery life is shocking, may as well throw drill, batteries and charger in the bin

Aldi should replace this drill combo with a better quality than the Workforce Titanium 24-volt, battery life is absolutely very very poor, may as well chuck the Drill, batteries and Charger in the bin after less than 12 months

Cheap but not cheerful

Seemed to be made really well and had a lot of features.. Drill, screwdriver and Hammer settings. Also had a light. Nice size and balance and is also 2 speeds. Then drill died after a few goes very disappointing. Returned for a full refund a month later. A bit sad Show details

Failed after 10 minutes light use

Ferrex policies on service do only one good thing: they convince you never to buy their products ever again, and by extension Aldi products, because Aldi management know full well how diabolical Ferrex are to deal with. SHAME ON ALDI MANAGEMENT for looking the other way & taking your hard earned $. I'm done with them. Show details

Chuck faulty within warranty but terrible warranty process

Chuck stopped tightening. After several emails back and forth and videos to show Chuck not working, was told to post it (Standard post!) at my own risk. Will only reimburse postage cost if not deemed Manufacturer's fault. On a $50 item I would be carrying all the risk of just about the same money in postage spent trying to get the item fixed. Also, standard post has no tracking so additional risk there too. Not worth it! I'll try to fix it myself. 3 year warranty means nothing unless it is a mayor fault. Show details

battery issue

Spare battery similar to another review would not charge up when I came to use it some months later. After disassembly, I found electronic circuitry connected to various cell groups. Some of the cells had become out of step requiring individual charging. Now OK, but that would be beyond the average customer. The drill has performed very well for 4.5 years with only a recent chuck seizure that has been freed although I broke the chuck retaining machine screw (M6 x 16mm LH CSK) in the process. The chuck has been used with drill bits from <1mm to 13mm, impact & diamond core drill bits. Show details

Warranty issues ?????

I just purchased this drill but have not used it yet. Hopefully my drill is problem free.

But this post is about warranty with Aldi which people seem to have issues with.
I have had 2 occasions where an Aldi tool crapped itself. I took the tool & receipt to the Aldi store i purchased it from (not that the store matters probably) and they refunded me the purchase price immediately.
No drama at all.
Unfortunately, if you do have a problem, it is often not possible to get an exchange as they are all sold, so a refund is it.
Aldi's warranty is honored as far as i am concerned.

Works for small jobs around the house

Does small jobs around the house. I wouldn't recommend it for working purposes but it is useful for small home jobs. I probably wouldn't buy again if I had the option.
The trigger keeps going off and on so I don't get the full capacity of the drills strength because it's not continuous. Show details

Had exact same issue as J. Brown in the comments (drill starts, stops, starts, stops ...).
Is this an 'overload' issue? Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks.
